Hello! I'll be spending about 12 days in the Phoenix area as I'll be working at the Super Bowl. I'm hoping to have a bit of free time the weekend before the game (maybe a few hours) and half a day or so the day after the game.
I've never spent any time in Arizona and would like to be able to say I did at least one fun thing (working at the game doesn't count)!
I'd be interested in some scenery. Can anyone recommend a place that's not too far to drive to that would be lovely and calming (you know, the opposite of Super Bowl week!). I'm not so much interested in things such as strenuous hikes because I'll be on my feet constantly the whole week.
BTW, I'll be staying at a hotel in Peoria.
Thanks for your help!
